  1. I used and completed the whole Obagi treatment. From December 2008 to April 2009. The result - It made my skin look 30% better. Now I switched to the Asian Obagi version - Dermclinic's NuDerm. It helped somehow. Just persevere, especially during the first weeks. It's really painful, you will be tempted to quit.
  2. I had 4 sessions by now. The 4th was two weeks ago. I'd say the result is negligible - not noticeable. But I'm not giving up. I'll get more sessions when i get back to the philippines. I'm also going to buy a dermaroller online and do it myself. I'm not giving up!
  3. I just use a C serum at 15-20% at 2.8-3.5ph. Supplements I use are vitamin c, msm, grape seed extract, omega 3. Abslutely. I read somewhere that fish oils (0mega3) should be avoided before an operation/cosmetic procedures as it an anti-coagulant or makes you bleed a lot and hard to scab or heal.
  4. Noypi ka ba?

  5. I had a fraxel session with Belo last December 2008. It cost me +/- 22,00 pesos. No noticeable difference. Been reading www.realself.com and found out that even after 4- 5 sessions, most of the patients didn't achieve noticeable disappearance of scars. I'm looking at TCA cross or derma rolling this September.
  6. That Seinfeld episode is what crossed my mind too Charlemagne. Hehehe!
  7. i'm eager to add this to my anti acne arsenal but i doubt the feasibility of having it fresh. would a bottled aloe vera do the trick?
  8. The best way to avoid temptations is to not buy them in the first place. Keep them out of your house or place them where you can't see it often.
  9. hey spitfire! You can get the skin by peeling it out of a fresh pomegranate fruit and crush it together with the other ingredients. if you google "pomegranate" you will also find out that aside from the high antioxidant capacity of the seeds, the skin of pomegranate is also packed with healing powers that's why i use all parts of the pomegranate when making my anti-acne concoction. i'm now 27 and for the past 13 years, i have used a lot of over the counter, chemical-filled unguents as a result
  10. I think there's also a black seed oil being sold in the market. That's what I'm gonna experiment next. So far I'm loving the "mud pack" black seed. Can't go to bed without 'em. I'm wondering what will be the effect if I mix black seed oil, pomegranate oil and neroli oil? Hmmm... Let's see. Seven, I think it's effective if you apply the black seed on your skin. Try to ground it and mix with apple cider vinegar, ground seed + skin of pomegranate. I hope it will do the magic to y
  11. Hi there Mara, Asher, Shanuea, Thereishope....everybody! I posted a close up photo of raw black seed and the ground black seed. Hope this will help you identify when you came across this stuff.
  12. This coming Saturday, I'm gonna post a picture of the black seed I bought. Amusing posts about bible quotes though.
  13. Melbourne! You have no idea how excited I was when I read this post. I just discovered something really great to add into my anti-acne arsenal. Have you heard about black seeds? Scientific name is Nigella Sativa. In the Muslim world they call it "habbah al barahkat" . Their prophet, Mohammad (PBUH although I am Christian) called this seed as a "cure for any disease except death." Now, i thought, their most revered prophet would not say something like that if it will just ruin h
